Did a quick search and could not find anything in this regard. Does anyone have information on import tax/duties for hiking equipment, specifically hiking packs and bivvies? Secondly does anyone have prior experience with trekinn/runninginn online shop, or any advice on which outdoor online shops to order from.

Thanks In Advance

On p. 411 of this doc it shows the import duties from different regions for camping equipment. As far as I know this would not include footwear or other random items.

See if you can get what you want via Amazon Global. They calculate shipping (not via SAPO - only courier) together with imports/customs tax and charge you this up front. There are therefore no hidden costs down the line nor worries about your purchases not arriving.

Got a friend that is going to the states, and will bring the stuff with on his return. Not keen on waiting for it to get eventually get cleared by customs as I need it asap. But thanks for the help, I will keep in mind for next time.
